Medium-difficulty tour from Scuol up to the scenic Vastur towards Sent. The view here stretches from the border triangle in the southeast over Sent, the Lower Engadine Dolomites of the Sesvenna and Pisoc group to Scuol and Tarasp and far into the distance to Guarda and Lavin.

From Scuol Hospital, follow the signs to Sent until you reach the signpost to Pazos. The path turns left and after two bends passes a farm. Follow this road and continue to Pazos. From here the tour follows the signs to Vastur, always ascending. Continue over snow-covered marshland until you reach the farm and the Vastur restaurant, the highest point of the hike. The view here stretches from the border triangle in the southeast over Sent, the Lower Engadine Dolomites of the Sesvenna and Pisoc group to Scuol and Tarasp and far into the distance to Guarda and Lavin. From Vastur you descend via two hairpin bends to the entrance of Val da Muglins, turn right here and return via Chauennas to the starting point at the hospital in Scuol. Alternatively, from Val da Muglins you can take the road straight on to Sent and from there the PostBus to Scuol (Clozza stop).

Author’s recommendation

It is recommended to take a few minutes in Scuol and walk through the village with its wide squares.

Schöner Winterwanderweg, kann auch mit Schneeschuhen begangen werden. Eindrückliches Panorama auf der Sonne zugewandten Talseite. Aber: Ab Sent teilt man sich mit den Weg mit Rodlern, welche ihr Gerät nicht immer ganz unter Kontrolle haben.
